So, let’s find out what the cast had to say about working on the Godmothered movie!
Jillian Bell: She’s got magic and spells, and is trying to make dreams come true. I’m still blown away that I got the part and got to act amongst all these people. This iss such a great cast.
Isla Fisher: They’re pushing a certain type of male, you know, being rescued by a prince or a woman without a mother, an abandoned woman, or woman as a witch as a stepmother. These stereotypes don’t necessarily match my ideals. I’ve always sort of reform them, restructure them and I’ve always exchanged words like beautiful for good or smart. I think that’s what all kind of modern moms do because we don’t want to subvert the stereotypes that are there because they’re so old.
Jane Curtin: It represents what the world is today. It’s not 1860 anymore. It’s castles and all of this kind of stuff. Happily ever after is what you want. It’s what you believe and it’s a goal that you can achieve on your own. If you want it, if you believe that you can get it, it’s something that is not reliant on magic. It’s reliant on you and your spirit. I think that’s really something we all have to remember. That we are capable of such amazing things and such positive things for ourselves and for others.
Jillian Spaeder: Filming the performance scene was really fun for me ‘cause I’m a singer and guitar player in real life. So, getting to do that and also getting to act was such a fun experience to do at the same time.
Santiago Cabrera: I like that it wasn’t your typical prince. He’s kind of like the underdog and he definitely felt like Isla’s character was out of his league, rightly so. He was the guy who’s like a serious journalist who wanted to report important stories and good news. He’s last in the ratings, sensationalist morning show, being abused by his boss. So, there was a lot of fun elements to it.
Utkarsh Ambudkar: If you ask my daughter right now what she wants to be when she grows up, she’ll tell you a fairy. We 100 percent believe and support in magic in our household. We’re constantly in fairy mode.
Godmothered Movie Synopsis
Set at Christmas time, “Godmothered” is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 12-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.
